New Features and Enhancements for January 2022

Data Warehouse Generator Assignment Improvements

A series of improvements have been made to Data Warehouse to improve intelligent Generator assignment and overall performance.

Create Domains from an Imported JSON Schema

Additional Domain creation functionality has been added for importing metadata using a JSON Schema file. This feature supports various metadata management applications such as Ab Initio. 

To import a JSON Schema, expand the New Domains Menu within the Domains Pane and select Import from JSON Schema. For more information, please see this article How to Import Domains from a JSON Schema File.

Create Domains using Quick Pattern Domain

Quick Pattern Domain allows a user to quickly and easily create Domains that follow a common design pattern. There are currently three available design patterns: Map/Type Table, List, or Permutation. 

On this single form, users can define the information for multiple Attributes within a Domain simultaneously without having to define what Generator to use. Quick Pattern Domain is especially useful when defining Type Tables. To learn more, please see this article: How do I use Quick Pattern Domain?.

Additionally, in order for the collected data to be sent to GenRocket data warehouse and displayed in G-Analytics report organization must install and activate G-Repository.
